About Me

My name is Blake Leonard and I'm a self taught artist and character designer from and based out of the Tuscaloosa, AL area.

I've been drawing ever since I first able to pick up a pencil or pen but once The Lion King was released my interest in drawing and animation was magnified. To this day it's still my favorite animated film, and favorite film of all time. Growing up I was also very into Hanna Barbera and Don Bluth animation.

I consider myself a geek, and some of my interests outside of art include toy collecting, costuming, music, and movies.
